August>Dec '87 was a hot period
Middle day of first-ever run in the new Shoreline Amphitheater (designed to look like a Lightning Skull from above). They'd play their new home venue 39 times through '95 (less than 8 years). The Dead were the planned venue-openers but Garcia's coma meant the slot went to Frampton/Nicks. Just as well because it then had to be rebuilt for methane leaks. People would drop their cigarettes and flames would burn from the grass. The canvas top was the world's largest until the Denver airport. They used to let surrounding residents buy tix one day early.
First Set. Hey Pocky A-way was still new and this was where it gelled. Bobby recognizes the new, site-recycled venue in Minglewood: "T right here wherever we are - a garbage heap!" The next few are x-factor with a steady tempo'd Candyman, and a punchy Masterpiece follows an Addams Family tuning. Fadeaway is solid too, but the rest is average.
Second Set. Maggie's is the second one ever (sans Dylan), one of the best of the Brent era, and if you wanna hear a perfect tranny: this was the first of two times they dropped straight into Cumberland. The whole set is above average - Drums got good in '87 and Other One was typically tight in the back half of '87. Brent had a new way of making Stella sweep. Lovelight is a shorty and Mighty Quinn is the show's 3rd Dylan.
1st Set: B-
2nd Set: B-
Overall = 3 1/2 Stars
Candyman - steady tempo version
When I Paint My Masterpiece - Brent great
Maggie's Farm>Cumberland - smooth aftermath of Dylan tour and classic segue
Stella Blue - Brent adds power
SOURCES: All the usual suspects for this one and then some. Charlie's newer version has misplaced trax; the Ashley/Bertha is otherwise about the same. The hollister.8829 is the cleanest and punchiest (without the slight distortion of the Ashley and lack of image of the Miller). But for best image and overall sound go with the Healy SBD on gmb.79380. The pro-shot video for whatever reason has a better mix (usually on youtube). Six of the songs are on View from the Vault III and a seventh on Postcards.
